Bugs re. HTML mail colouring (display) and character entity replacement (responding)
||Date:||27 Aug 2021 17:29|
I've just had reason to respond to an HTML email. As usual, I'm using plain
Two problems related to that:
1. Display of the original email
I'm using a dark theme (Adwaita-dark) with Xfce. Text is white by default.
Given a message which sets the background colour but fails to set the
foreground colour, this can be problematical â€“ particularly when the
background colour is white.
(Arguably, this is the sender's fault for making assumptions about defaults.)
2. Replacement of ’ in the response
Single closing quotation marks, such as in â€œWeâ€™reâ€ (raw text â€œWe’reâ€)
were replaced by line breaks in the quoted text in my reply.
It is possible that other similar characters may have been, or would be,
replaced; I have not checked.
And one bonus problem, related to THIS email:
The list address wasn't automatically inserted in the â€˜Toâ€™ field.
Possibly an input focus problem (the input focus isn't in the message list,
and there are no messages to select).
Running 22.214.171.12452 on Devuan chimaera (eqv. Debian bullseye).
I would report via the bug tracker, were it workingâ€¦
